Jotun has been selected by Malaysia-based Petroliam Nasional Berhad (PETRONAS) to supply their Hull Performance Solutions (HPS) antifouling system for two LNG vessels.

The two vessels- Seri Amanah and Puteri Zamrud will be equipped with Jotun’s advanced antifouling coatings and a comprehensive range of performance measurement sensors to enhance vessel’s operational efficiency, reduce fuel costs and create a reduction in fuel emissions by 10%.

A ship’s underwater hull surface plays a key role in impacting a ship’s energy efficiency and is responsible for 1/10 of the world fleet’s fuel consumption.

The solution is a combination of antifouling and application technologies to prevent the growth of organisms on hulls.

"The data from its 60-month operational period showed that carbon-dioxide emissions were cut by some 12,055t."

According to Jotun HPS regional sales director Morten Sten Johansen, the documented proof of HPS’ efficacy has instilled a confidence into the ship operators to leverage on the solution to achieve both environmental and business performance.

Johansen said: "We recently released details of the first five-year dry-docking for the very first vessel treated with HPS, the Penguin Arrow (Bulk Carrier, 51,414 DWT).

"The data from its 60-month operational period showed that carbon-dioxide emissions were cut by some 12,055t, translating to a total fuel saving of $1.5m. This is real proof of real performance.

"HPS’ combination of silyl methacrylate coating technology and an ISO 19030 compliant measurement system delivers significant and proven emission and cost savings."

In 2014, China Merchant Energy Shipping leveraged Jotun’s antifouling solution as well as their HPS including SeaQuantum X200 into their newly-built very large crude carriers (VLCC) at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry.
